Note that I did not propose to install nscd on all Debian systems.
The list of packages I proposed to add for Debian as a whole was this
shorter list:

  consolekit, dmidecode, ethtool, finger, fping, gdebi, hdparm, iftop,
  iotop, less, libpam-ck-connector, lsscsi, memtest86, mtr-tiny,
  ncftp, nmap, nullidentd (replacing pidentd), pciutils, procinfo,
  psmisc, strace, tcpdump, tcptraceroute, traceroute, wget

I would recommend making sure nscd do not cache DNS entries.

Happy hacking,
